Jay-Z once said something similar a few years ago. (Ironic because Jay-Z and 3K are probably Wayne's biggest influences outside of the obvious New Orleans stuff) . The Carter 2 was when the mainstream started realizing he could rap, but you can't hang your hat on that and a couple of hot mixtapes. He still has not delivered a classic album...Kanye West has a better discography if we're being realistic and obviously Wayne's a more talented rapper. But you don't get put in greatest of all time discussions without having those type of albums on your resume'.

Your only as good as your last verse or product. When was the last time you heard a Wayne feature that made your jaw drop? A verse that made you double-take? It's more his persona than his lyrics at this point. "I think about more than I forget." Who else but Wayne could say that and have people going :shock:


6'7' and Fire Flame Remix both had sick Weezy verses lol. I agree though you can't do it on flow alone. Jigga makes you feel his music much like Pac and Big did. And no Wayne album has ever come close to an Illmatic, Blueprint, All Eyez on Me, Life After Death, etc. But Wayne created a new lane for rapping. Not just like obvious punchlines, but some of his ish is well thought out and has me trippin for a bit. Especially when he inserts references from our childhood (since he is like our age still lol). I guess its "to each their own" with Wayne but I appreciate what he's accomplished thus far and will continue to support his career.

I haven't heard the Fire Flame Remix...I'll go check. I pretty much gave up on the radio because I hate Wacka Flocka at any point that's not a party.

In @ Michigan! One of the sickest campuses, IMO.

right there with you. The more I think about it, the less I can see myself turning down the offer. Don't really know if I want to spend 3 years surrounded by corn fields...but I guess I can manage.

Anyone hear from Columbia yet? I know I applied in early-mid December and live in arctic city formerly know as Chicago.... But, late December people have gotten in. I have heard from several other (higher ranked) schools. Does not hearing mean that they don't think I'm an attractive applicant?

I have also heard they don't like their own undergrads (you can guess where that might leave me)

I was held at Columbia in that huge hold frenzy that occurred last week. Here's to hoping you have better luck!

I really don't know what to think. LSP has me at a solid deny for Columbia, but for NYU too (where I got in). *sigh* Here's hoping. I do so love powder blue.

FYI, LSP is mostly garbage for URMs. Take whatever results it gives you with a pinch of salt.

Good luck !!!
